Shep [6 Months]
I cannot believe Shep is already half a year old! His little life seems to just be flying by. Shep is still the sweetest, most cuddliest guy ever.
Weight/Height: We go back to the doctor at the end of the month so I'll update after. My guess is around 18lbs
Hair: Shep is finally starting to get more hair on his little Q-ball head.
Clothes: Shep is wearing all 6 month clothes and could probably wear some 6-9 month stuff too. He is long and thick!
Diapers: Shep is still in size 2 diapers but will probably move up to 3's here soon.
Sleeping: This past month was a little better in the sleep department. Shep is still waking a couple times a night for his paci but overall he is getting much better. His skin has it's good days and bad days and the bad days definitely affect his sleep. Poor guy is just so itchy!!
Likes: Snuggling with mama, eating, playing with Bennett
Dislikes: Honestly nothing really upsets Shep other than his itchy skin from eczema.
Eating: Shep eats four 8oz bottles a day and has baby food 3 times a day. I have been making all of his food and it's been fun! With his allergies I've just been so worried about giving him food so I figured this way I would know exactly what he was eating. It has also saved a ton of money since his formula is SO expensive. I will probably do a post soon on the foods we've made and how we made them.
Milestones: Shep is officially sitting up! I cannot believe we are already at this stage. I really feel like he was born yesterday!!
Baby Items We Can't Live Without: Shep loves jumping in his Exersaucer and playing on his play mat. We also still use our Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat a ton. The toy we absolutely can't live without is THIS. It is his favorite thing to play with. He will sit in his highchair and play with it while we clean/cook/etc.
